Sylvian Hyde NYFW
New York is home to many aspiring designers and emerging brands, but who is Sylvian Hyde?
Hyde is a native of Belize who had to leave in 2014 for his own safety. During his lengthy, dehumanizing experience at the Immigration Detention Center, he spent his days sketching his designs outfitted in Bergen County Jail-orange using improvised art supplies. With a three-inch pencil, the white rubber edges of his shoes as an improvised eraser and a safety flex pen, Hyde went to work.

Hyde later used friction, rubbing torn colored pieces of the New York Times newspaper unto specific areas of his designs to color them. With nothing but time to spare and suffering faces around him, Hyde channeled his emotions and energy into his once-impossible dream in Belize, of being a fashion designer in the land of opportunity.
